Om migI'm an electronic resources librarian at a university library in the Chicago suburbs. I've worked at several nearby public and academic libraries since 2010, while also teaching English and history to homeschoolers part-time until 2017.

I share my flat with three cats, which accentuates the stereotype of the bespectacled, cat-loving, spinsterish librarian. Tara and Ralph really don't get on with each other, so both are featured separately (as kittens) among my profile pictures. Among those are also pictures of Tim and Bester, their two feline companions who passed in 2016 and are much missed. Zuki is an older family cat who recently moved in with me, and a photo will be forthcoming.

Om mitt bibliotekMost of my physical books (those under the "Your Library" collection) were found at resale shops, library sales, and used book stores. I preorder the new releases of a handful of authors, though. I've also started picking up significantly more e-books and audiobooks, but those are currently added only as I read them and are placed in separate collections, as are borrowed items. My use of tags and collections is mostly self-explanatory, if intermittently applied.

As far as physical storage, my books are (mostly) on shelves all around my flat. I stopped cataloging my acquisitions for a few years, so as of mid-2021, I've begun a weeding and cataloging project, with plans to organize and reduce my physical inventory before my next move, hopefully within the next 12 months. I'm currently deploying tags such as "BRT1" or "LRS2" as location and/or boxing codes.

To explain the large number and odd mixture of favorite authors, I was initially adding just about everyone whose books I enjoyed and had read several of. I've not updated the list much since 2014, so it's not especially representative.

Challenges:
In 2021, I'm opting to casually complete a few "at-home" challenges in a spreadsheet, rather than official LT challenges. Maybe next year!

My 999 Challenge: Completed
My 2d 999 Challenge: Completed
My 1010 Challenge: Completed
My 11 in 11 Challenge: Completed
No LT challenge for 2012: I kept a spreadsheet, though, and read a rather surprising 330 books.
Started a challenge in 2013, but I forgot to keep up with it and instead started a blog, which was not less work, so I put it on hold/abandoned it as well...
My 2014 ROOT challenge: Completed
My 2015 ROOT challenge: Completed
My 2016 ROOT challenge: Completed
